Hollow Road Forest offers long stream frontage on Allentown Brook, stunning beaver ponds, and attractive pine, spruce and hardwood stands. It is a versatile, multiple-use land and timber investment tucked privately within the rolling foothills of Great Sacandaga Lake’s North Shore region. Lying just inside the Adirondack Park’s ‘Blue Line’, the property offers opportunity for outdoor weekend recreation, future cabin development and a smart, long-term investment that can be passed on to family and heirs. The property is within 45 minutes of Saratoga Springs and an hour of the Capital District Region. New York City and Boston are both within a four-and-a-half hour drive.
The property has a high proportion of productive ground to grow trees, while simultaneously allowing numerous recreational and weekend retreat opportunities. It is easy to get around on the good trail system with an ATV or other off-road vehicle. The property’s large acreage offers more than enough room for a quality deer management program or hunting group lease. There is a mile of beautiful frontage on Allentown Brook, a year-round stream meandering through a series of stunning natural beaver ponds
The diverse and rich natural resources on a property this large can be managed to support a wide variety of ownership goals. The forest species mix is a classic Adirondack menu of white pine, red spruce, the birches, maples, ash, beech, balsam and aspen. Mixedwood stands of towering white pines, hemlock, spruce, red maple and birches are prevalent to the east of Allentown Brook, while high-value northern hardwoods dominate the sloping ridge-side terrain west of the creek basin. Much of the property’s acreage was thinned sometime around 2009, based upon a Google Earth reconnaissance. A recent site inspection revealed a light thinning at that time leaving a lot of valuable wood for the next ownership.
